And the Winner Is...

The Busy Bees walked their little legs off last night in the Aiken, SC Relay for Life - but Lazy Sister Sue was up bright and early this morning (well - 9:30 AM) to let me know the results of the Raffle Drawing...

The winner was Florence H., an 80-year old member of the Carolina Pine Quilters Quilt Guild, the same guild that most of the Busy Bees are in. She is a "help when she can" Busy Bee, and actually only got a chance to get into town to buy her tickets at the Aiken Quilt Shoppe (where Lazy Sister Sue also teaches!) on Thursday.

With the support of everyone on the raffle, a goat raffle, a Bunko night, and various other sales, fundraisers and donations, the group raised over $4000, which will go to the American Cancer Society.

Thanks Everyone! - Look for more from the Busy Bees... but we will give them a chance to recover first!
